SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Jason Hammel pitched two scoreless innings in his spring debut and Chris Iannetta hit a two-run homer as the Colorado Rockies beat Arizona 7-4 on Tuesday for their third consecutive win over the Diamondbacks in spring training.
Ryan Spilborghs, Ty Wigginton and Jordan Pacheco also drove in runs for the Rockies, who hosted their first game at Salt River Fields near Scottsdale, Ariz.
Russell Branyan hit a three-run homer, Stephen Drew had two hits and Gerardo Parra drove in a run for the Diamondbacks.
Hammel, who set a career high for 177-and-two-thirds innings pitched last year, allowed one hit and struck out a batter.
Diamondbacks left-hander Joe Saunders made it through two innings in his second start of the spring.
He allowed two runs and three hits, a better outing than his first appearance when he gave up four runs and four hits in 1-and-two-thirds innings.
